Hi, got the MUDI for a few days, and was surprised that the 7000mAh battery that feeds a device solely as router purpose last shorter than a mobile phone with half the battery capacity. And such a bulky wifi egg barely last one full day.
Anyway, I am not making complaint. The device is meeting my expectation otherwise. What I want to do is to try to minimize battery usage as possible, e.g. turn off unused services as far as possible. I have made reference to this page:
and found that even if I use the uqmi command, I cannot completely turn off the modem. May I ask what action is needed if I want to completely turn of the modem (not just disconnecting the connection)?
Also, I seem to have seen requests in the forum earlier about turning off wifi/modem when the device goes to standby mode. May I ask whether this is under development in future firmware? I do not mind if it takes slightly more time to resume from standby, and I think we should at least be given this option.
I would also like to suggest that, since it is a travel router, the option to enable/disable roaming services should be made more easily accessible, than a manual input of AT command.
In my experience with the v1 mudi, if you press the power button it puts it in a standby mode. This turns all radios off including WiFi and then modem into a semi hibernate state. You can press it again to turn the standby mode off. See if this helps with longivity.
I’ve done some study before I post. According to this post, standby mode doesn’t stop the radio. The reason for that is it takes 30s to 1min to reconnect. I would assume the wifi is up as well.
Actually I am fine with a manually triggered standby mode that stop radio and all wifi (upstream/downstream), or only allow upstream wifi if it is already connected. What I want to achieve is that the device can easily survive a day (12-15 hours) without charging.
Also, I have checked the list of current feature request 2023 and found nothing remotely relevant to this.
